Day 321…Columned Stinkhorn

Welcome to day 321 of  365 photos…this mushroom is growing among the wood chips in the garden. We have had a lot of rain lately and they pop up quite quickly.

Thanksgiving, Boater Style

About the only negative of our lifestyle, living on our boat and the freedom to travel wherever we want, is that occasionally we’re away from our family on holidays like Thanksgiving and Christmas. Such was the case this Thanksgiving. We have been sitting at the dock in Apalachicola, Florida for almost two weeks waiting for the right weather window to cross the Gulf of Mexico and the Big Bend region of Florida. We had hoped to be farther along and be able to spend this holiday with family. It was not to be, but just because we aren’t able to spend the time with our first family, doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy the holiday with our boating family. For this Thanksgiving, the traditional dinner turned out to be a rather large gathering.

Skirting the Weather

One of the nice things about our anchorage in Clearwater was that there is dinghy access to a Publix Supermarket which we took advantage of. Pam was nearly out of half & half so all things stopped until the supply could be replenished!The dinghy do…

George Town Exumas

The short day run from Staniel Cay to George Town was calm and beautiful. Anna Mae has been anchored in front of The Monument on Stocking Island. A hike we decided not to take due to the mosquitos…Our days have been full and relaxing in the warm…
